If UBC students were invited by the professors to the Fac

day, will benefit from this interchange of ideas.

proposed by debater
Brown in the Faculty-Student
Debate, "Resolved that the professors learn more from the students than the students learn
from the professors" held on
Friday in Bu. 100.
Speakers for the affirmitive
were faculty members Professors Elliott (Classics) £»nd Feltham (Law), and for the negative,
students Dave Anderson and
Rick Brown. Judges were unanimous in awarding the debate in
favor of the two students.
Professor Elliott began the debate with a hilarious interpreta
tion of each word in the resolution. He defined a professor as
someone who professes, and a
student as something that resembles "Pepsident", or someone who drinks Pepsi.
Students, he feels, should be
called "studs". He concluded by
saying that professors really do
learn more from the students and
then he quoted from the Gospel
of St. Elliott.
Dave Anderson argued that
, professors have not time to adequately learn from the students,
and besides, what can one expect to learn from the "stupid
few" that attend classes? Since
many students don't come to
UB,C to learn, but to indulge in
extracurricular activities, what
can- the prof, ever hope for?
If the faculty REALLY wanted to learn /something, then the
students should be invited to the
Faculty Club and-shown how to;
throw a- truly -successful bash.
If professors elaim-that they
learn as mueh from'theistuttertsr
as they do, why don't they copy
their style of dress or hair
styles?
Prof. Feltham claims that
Brock Hall and Caf conversation "creatively helps them".
Marking student exam papers
also provides further opportunity to learn from the students.
Since the prof, is the "focal
point of university life", he
learns much from communicating with students.
He "clinched" his argument
by stating that profs are not denied the truth. At UBC, where
the student failure rate is so
high, you don't find a professor
failing, for he succeeds from the
knowledge gained from communicating with the students.
Mr. Brown argued that the
opinions of profs are readily
changeable .although they are
as insipid as "raw Acadia porridge". Professors allow.no opportunity for the students to express themselves; an example of
this was seen at the recent Academic Symposium, where the
profs argued among themselves
and chased blondes into the
woods.
Mr. Brown stated that professors are not making the proper
advances to students (except to
the females for cocktails at the
Faculty Club or idle talk at the
Georgia pub). And even when
students and faculty get together, all the profs can talk
about revolves around domestic
troubles and faculty tiffs. At the
conclusion of your chat, you'll
find yourself providing transportation home for the poor
prof.
Changes in Policy, Format
Promised For Next Year
By'DIANNE GREENALr.
'Lively and humorous, critical and controversial", that
will be the essence of the Ubyssey's editorial policy next year
under the newly elected Editor-in-Chief, Fred Fletcher.
RCAAP Hopes
For Definite
Action Soon
The RCMP are confident that
they will be able to take definite
action on the defaced paintings
case within four or five days, a
spokesman told the Ubyssey
Monday.
He said that they have a promising lead, but warned that it
could turn out to be a false a-
larm.
It is rumoured that the police
have the license number of a
car seen leaving the scene of the
Brock vandalism.
Constable Ken Robinson, the
investigating officer, is away on
two weeks leave. His successor,
Consable D. Klatt, is still familiarizing himself with the case.
"Prostitution" To Be
Debated at Noon
Resolved "That Prostitution be
Legalized in Vancouver" will be
the topic of a debate sponsored
by the Debating Union in Arts
100, at noon today.
This debate was presented at
the Junior Chamber of Commerce last Monday. It resulted
in a group of very amused Commerce-men.
Four top flight debators' will
be in-aetka*. They are: Ken Hodkinson, (McGoun cup debater),
Lorene Gordon, Tom D-'Axpino,
Len Geddes...
Fletcher, a second year arts
student, was elected to this position by the present Ubyssey editorial board last Friday. The official ratification of his position
was given last night at the Students' Council meeting.
The other two candidates for
the post were Derek Allan, Arts
II and Frank Findenigg, Arts I.
UBC students have been getting a sample of Fred's ability
in his editorial-type column, the
"Five Thirty Club". This experience plus his knowledge of the
Students' Council should put
Fred in a; good position to pass
judgement on next year's council.
This has been Fletcher's first
full year with the Ubyssey but
he has always been an active
writer and plans a career in editorial writing.
A college newspaper should
not forget that factual reporting
is as important as critical comment and humor, said Fletcher
in his election platform. It
should make a concerted effort
to give good news coverage to
major campus events and, most
important, to present them in an
interesting fashion.
Other plans featured on
Fletcher's platform for the improvement of the Ubyssey are as
follows:
To dispell the common campus belief that news and comments in the Ubyssey are often
<S-
unreliable. Fletcher plans to do
this by instituting more authoritative criticism (includng praise
where warranted) of the AMS,
the admnistration and the political scene.
For example he plans to solicit articles from knowledgable
professors so as to have an authoritative analysis of political
events affecting UBC and university students.
To try to personalize the approach of the paper by including
wherever possible more regular
feature articles and columns.
Fletcher plans to carry on
many of the reforms started this
year in regards to staff organization. Novice reporters will be
given personal attention at the
beginning of the year to train
them and to keep them happy
so they will keep coming- back-
This might be accomplished by
assigning several rookies to each'
experienced reporter and editor.
Other staff reforms and improvements will be to have a
definite and consistent editorial
policy decided by regular meetings of the editorial board, a
mimeographed style book to be
distributed to each reporter at
the beginning of the year and
better  co-ordination  operations.
Fletcher also plans to minimize the space taken up by
'Tween Classes, by excluding
such things as executive meetings.

More About Socialism
.    By BILL PIKET
j Arts II
; i Onfe of the most amusing
parts of Mr. John S. Butter-
field's article on "Concerning
Soma and Socialism" was no
doubt his description of North
Arherica as a society in which
the standards are set by the
Workers, a "Workers' Paradise."
;: Nothing is more evident to?
day than that the contrary is
true, Our public pholosophy is
wfe •alcjsrlated'to be profitable
te capitalists. It is a piniloso-
l$ty of unabashed materialism
based on a. cult of competition.
ArM it is set bjr those who' mate
tB» peofit out of it, not by the
workers.
Today's capitalist is regarded as an expert on everything
from education to religion. He
arid his fellows sit on the
boards of Directors of our Universities. They run the
churches, and the Community
Chest. They channel scientific
research and control the means
of communication. They finance our major political parties and sit in the cabinet. They
are the successes of our society,
the best by our standards. "If
you're so smart, how co.me you
ain't rich?" is the traditional
though often subconscious approach to the non-businessman
social critic.
To describe our society by
"the creative efforts" of "the
entrepeneur," "the harmonious
interaction of supply-and demand," and "highly competitive and efficient markets" is
supremely ridiculous, and a
good indication of the inaccuracy of the rest of the article.
And to blame socialism for the
concentration of capital and
the elimination of competition
is eqally absurd. The trend
under capitalism is by the nature of the system towards
monopolies and oligopolies. If
"the weak are driven out by the
stronger, then it follows that
in time the few very strong
vttll have eliminated the rest.
Socialism is* not merely the
attempt to bring a society with
equal wages. Very few: socialists believe in striet equality
of income. Socialism is a
movement which believes that
our society ought to be organized along principles Of brotherhood and- the right of every
indJviduar to develop his or
hter inherent capacities,* So*
cialists believe it is the responsibility! of society to interfere
with and ,to. regulate the eco
nomy when and where it
threatens the rights and freedoms of the individual. In
other words, rather than producing an individual to suit the
economy, which is what is happening in our society today, socialism will produce a society
to suit the individual, a society enabling him to grow
into a mature, fully-developed,
and highly individualistic person.
Socialism, then, is not an attempt to close one's eye to the
realities of society. It is not
a drug, and, not an escape. On
the contrary, it is an attempt
to look at the problems realistically. And it is a proposal
to change society along positive
lines. Any comparison of socialism and soma along the
lines of the article of Mr. John
BUtterfield is no more than an
attempt to distort the truth
and an effort to throw dust in
our eyes.
The article claims that our
society is too materialistic, and
appears to connect this materialism with socialism. Then it
proceeds to advocate the return
to the old system of "laissez-
faire" on the grounds of its
supposed efficiency, the efficiency to produce more. In
other words, the author proposes to subject the individual
to a system Of ruthless degradation of the vast majority of
the people, for no mOre reason
than its supposed efficiency in
producing more material goods.
Surely the degradation and the
complete crippling of the human spirit for the mere sake
of an expected increase in industrial output is the most extreme of materialism to be
found. Don't blame materialism on socialists.
' Indeed it is characteristic
that the article should offer
no explanation for the increasingly violent symptoms of a
massive turn to tranquilizers
and a general run for the psychiatrist.' The fact that the
psychiatrist's couch is likely
to become the symbol of our
age is ignored. Surely this
should indicate that the cult of
competition, reinforced with a
profitable materialism, is not
a suitable basis for society, as
far as the vast majority of our
citizens are concerned?
Although it is absurd to argue that all public undertaking
are necessarily inefficient and
that all private enterprise is
naturally efficient, it will perhaps please Mr" Butterfield to
No Hypocrite
The Editor,
Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
As one of the other .unfortunate girls who were forced to
watch your vulgar, obscene
show, I would like to remind
Mr. Rebagliate and Mr. Halli-
s&y ihat Joan did NOT go to
the Pep Meet of her own free
will, therefore she could not
be called hypocritical. As for
being puritanical I do not consider myself a Puritan; I have
heard "dirty" jokes and watched "dirty" skits before, but
never to the degree of filth
shown by those at • your Pep
Meet.
Secondly as for the "reality
of our thoughts one does not
need any imagination whatsoever to see the point of your
skits—you made it quite plain,
even to the most innocent,
naive person.
Also, Mr. Rebagliate, if there
are so many girls interested in
such obscenity may I ask why
there were hot more there and
why those that were there had
to be forcefully dragged in?
As for my popularity increasing, I would be too embarrassed to answer my friends' queries about what went on at the
Pep Meet.
Since that ill-fated day I '
have talked to engineers who
have admitted that they, themselves, were shocked and embarrassed by the ahties at your
Pep Meet. If some of your
fellow faculty members were
shocked, I should think that, if
you possess even average intelligence, you would see the vulgarity of your so-called "reality".
I would like to stress once
more that Joan did not write
that letter to save face as she
would have no reason to, since
she did not attend that disgraceful exhibition of her own
free will, but was forcefully
dragged there! I am a witness
to that fact.
I appreciate the apology
given to us by the executive of
the Engineering Faculty, but
there are still two apologies
owing us—yours, Mr. Rebagliate, and yours, Mr. Hallisey.
Yours truly,
Another  Unfortunate Victim.
know that a great number of
socialists recognize the possibility that public enterprise
might be less efficient in total
output than private enterprise
would be. Nevertheless a reorganization, of industry along
lines of social desirability rather than immediate profit potential would do much to offset
this. Furthermore, private enterprise of today, as represented by the BC Electric and the
CPR is no more free from the
regrettable tendencies of bureaucracy than public enterprise would be. A socialist
would willingly give up the
possiblty of a larger gross output in return for the assurance
that whatever will be prouced
will be produced for social need
—and not greed—that it will be
produced in the background of
industrial democracy, and that
it will be distributed fairly.
The development of our economy and our resources should
be governed by> considerations
of building a community in
which every individual has the
freedom and, right to develop
independently-
NFCUS Scholarships    Varying Criticism
Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
Now that applications for the
NFCUS Exchange Scholarships
are due, I wonder how many
Second Year students are a-
ware of this rewarding opportunity. For any student who
wishes to broaden his knowledge of Canada this scholarship is ideal.
The qualifications for the
scholarship are not difficult to
fulfill. The student must, of
course, be in good standing.
Also he must have the courses
he plans to take at the new
university accepted for credit
for when he returns to his
fourth year at his home university. He may take this third
year at a university of his
choice.    •
This is a tremendous opportunity. The scholarship pays
the tuition fees and part of
the transportation to the university. One meets students of
another part of Canada; explores a new university; improves his understanding of
conditions in Canada; and sees
more of the Canadian  scene.
From one who has profitted
greatly from this experience
provided by NFCUS, I advise
anyone who is interested in
seeing Canada, and studying
under a different university
system to apply for this scholarship.
If you are interested or want
more information drop down
to the NFCUS office in the
Brock  Extension immediately.

Undemocratic?
The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
What's wrong with the UBC
elections?
Student  apathy?—possibly.
Undemocratic elections? —
also likely.
The elections on this campus,
which I presume are supposed
to be carried out in a democratic fashion, have been lacking
considerably in the necessary
enthusiasm of the voters.
It this lack of enthusiasm
really apathy?—could be—or
is it an expression of revolt
against the election system?
I believe that a good deal of
the blame rests on our election
practices—they are not democratic (in the Canadian sense
of the word.)
Major criticisms of the recent' elections are:
(1) Campaign  posters  are  dis
played    prominently    AT
the polls;
(2) There is vote soliciting AT
the polls;
(3) The persons in charge of
issuing ballots have obvious candidate affiliation
and display it clearly by
wearing campaign badges
AT.the polls.
These practices are contrary
to the Canada Election Act.
I realize that the Election
Act applies only to Canadian
government elections but UBC
HAS government and should, I
believe, follow more universally accepted election practices
and legislate (on the-above matters) in this direction,
Bruce Stobie,

Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Indeed it is strange that the
seasonal aberrations of students attract such varying degrees of criticism from our intellectual inferiors.
Last year it was considered
profane and sacriligious to
doubt the tenents of the Christian faith in the Goon Edition.
This year the Engineers
were a thousandfold more vulgar and immeasurably more
sacriligious in their presentation of "Budda's Ball"—their
yearly fertility rite.
But was a voice raised in
protest? Did our faithful president offer any apology for this
unpardonable insult to the
faith of millions in Ceylon,
Burma, Indo-China, Japan, and
Thailand? Did the downtown
press wring its damp, limp,
hands? Or doesn't it pay in
dollars to condemn all forms
of "Bad".
But isn't sacrilige, sacrilige
no matter against whom? Is
our public morality dictated by
the profit motive?
Let's recognize last year's
anti-UBC outburst for what it
was—a cheap attack by inferior intellects on their future
masters—an attack motivated
by love of dollars, not of Christianity.

The badminton team won the O. J. Walker Trophy, emblematic of WCIAU supremacy, by edging Manitoba.1 Leading the way
to UBC's victory was frosh star Rolf Paterson. Paterson beat teammate Keith Tolman in the Men's Single's final. V
Earlier, Tolman had assured a UBC victory'iri the event by

final game^ the Birds coasted to an easy 10^4 win. The curling win
was especially sweet for UBC, as the prairies are supposedly the
stronghold of the roaring game. Saskatchewan alone has 199 rinks

Birds End Year
On Winning Note
By MIKE HUNTER
UBC   Thunderbirds  closed  out their  1959-60  basketball
schedule by beating the University of Saskatchewan Huskies
twice, 80-40 Friday, and 68-55 Saturday.   ■■,.-'
The double win gave Birds an
11-1 record in their first WCIAU
season. They ended the year with
a fine 21-14 record in 35 games.
Both last weekend's games
were ragged, unexciting affairs,
as nothing was at stake. Birds
clinched the WCl title several
weeks ago, and Saskatchewan
had clinched last place. The
Birds were out to set records
and they did.
Wayne Osborne who has been
going wild under the boards
lately, grabbed a record 25 rebounds Friday night. And Saturday, he broke the records
again, by snaring 27—a UBC
record. Ken Winslade held on to
his league-leading average of
13.8 per game. Ken scored 27
points in the two games.
Friday, about 450 fans watched a listless game, in which the
Birds completely dominated the
inexperienced Huskies, Barry
Drummond led the scorers with
17 points, followed by Saskatchewan Mel Huszti, with 16,
and UBC's Norris Martin with
14.,,      •
